Anatomy. The findings in 50 anatomic sections of the nose and its accessory cavities with reference to the bones of the face have been reported in detail by Minder.1 Craniometric measurements show that small nasal openings correspond to a narrow upper part of the face and vice versa. Microscopically, in 14 autopsies the findings were normal, in 10 inflammatory changes, in 12 transitional epithelium, in 14 metaplasia of the turbinate mucosa, the latter being of equal frequency in narrow and wide faced individuals. Of the former in 10.5 per cent, of the latter in 8.3 per cent swelling and metaplasia of the turbinates were found. In an examination of 11,000 skulls E. S. Talbot2 found that owing to the fragility of the septum the whole of it or its anterior part was lost in many. But 7,600, therefore, had sufficient remaining to give an idea of its shape- 5,762 of this number showed marked deformities. A careful study of these deformities showed that the septum could be divided into three parts, anterior, middle and posterior. While traumatism occasionally may produce deflection in the anterior third of the nose, how it could produce deflection merely in the middle or posterior third of the septum is not easily demonstrable. The theory that from 50 to 80 per cent, or even 5 per cent of the deformities of the s?ptum are due to such, in juries is demonstrably illogical. In the large number the author examined, 2,684 possessed what appeared to be fracture. The theory that deformity is primarily the result of traumatism due to injury in utero or at the time of delivery, or even subsequently, except by direct force and secondarily to a slow inflammatory process, will not account for these deal Archiv far Laryngol....
